Taking photos with iPads, especially with that 12.9-inch one, looks pretty funny. I know, that big screen used as a preview of photo you are about to take makes sense, but still it’s pretty strange to take photos with such device. Maybe I’m little weird, but my 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2018 is my main camera, for both photos and videos, so I’m glad that iPads Pro got cameras from iPhones and I can also finally take 4K video at 60 FPS. With the right apps like Camera-M or FiLMiC Pro, your iPad Pro can be a serious device for taking photos and videos.
Regular, non-Pro iPads, still got poor camera without ability to record 4K video. Rumored new regular iPad, successor of budget iPad 2018, should get 10.2-inch screen and dual-lens camera from iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. As for iPads Pro, they should get the same triple-lens rear camera as in rumored new 2019 iPhones, which should be introduced in September.
Rumors say, that new OLED iPhones will get triple-lens rear cameras – wide-angle, super wide-angle, and telephoto lenses – and the same camera setup should get 2019 iPads Pro. Such camera upgrade is not only about taking photos, but also it can improve AR experiences on big iPads. Apple is heavily marketing AR on iPads, and it can also provide more differencies between regular iPads and Pro line, while regular rumored 10.2-inch iPad may get some little improvements with dual-camera as well.
If you are using your iPad or iPhone like me, definitelly check mentioned Camera-M and FiLMiC Pro:
